[Ansteorra-rapier] Marshalling pole challenge

Here's an idea.
Ask a friend who's a heavy fighter to give you his/her old polearm instead 
of throwing it away. I did that and now I have two marshalling staffs. Sure 
one is only four feet long, but it's better than nothing.
I taped mine red and white for stop and all clear.
